Online Dating
  • I recently met a woman online who is from Ghana. We have been corresponding daily with each other.
    Is there a risk that she is not who she claims to be our am I just being a paranoid American.
    Yes, I fully understand that there are always risks associated with online dating, but I'm wondering if I should be concerned about being scammed because of where she is from.
  • You'll find many stories of scams on this forum, and as cynical as it sounds there is a chance you are being scammed by this person.

    Keep an eye out for red flags like:

    -Declarations of love after a very short period
    -Unwillingness to chat via webcam
    -Increasingly elaborate excuses regarding residence

    And above all, requests for money. The best way to avoid getting scammed is to never send money to a person you haven't met. Remember, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Howdy, Stranger!
